RCTC approved a design-build contract with a joint venture team headed by Atkinson Construction and Walsh Construction Company in May 2013. The Atkinson/Walsh team was selected from a field of four design-builders that were prequalified to submit proposals. RCTC awarded a $632 million contract to the Atkinson/Walsh team, which includes URS as its lead designer. Atkinson/Walsh was selected based on a best value determination, which included an innovative proposal and competitive price.
Atkinson/Walsh is hiring subcontractors to perform specific work for the 91 Project. In addition, because the project is funded in part by federal sources, Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) regulations apply to the contract. A DBE is a for-profit small business that is at least 51 percent owned by one or more individuals who are both socially and economically disadvantaged certified by certifying member agencies of the CUCP. For more information about the certification process or to apply for certification, firms should visit the CUCP website at www.californiaucp.org. RCTC believes that small and disadvantaged businesses are key drivers of the economy and supports their involvement in the 91 Project.
A 9.4 percent goal has been set for the hiring of the disadvantaged businesses to serve as subcontractors for the project. This equates to more than $59 million in available contracting opportunities for designated disadvantaged business enterprises.
